We made it. The final chapter of an odd business blog series somehow loosely related to cows. For this final blog post in this series, I thought a quick recap of our major takeaways was in order. So without further ado…
Sacred Cow Grilling Tips…
- People within a business will either allow for change or reject it entirely.
- You can’t get people to agree to change they need to want it.
- To be the best you need to create change not respond to it.
- Change is a constant process, to stop changing is to stop doing business.
- Be a beginner, ask stupid questions and challenge the status quo.
- A group of people does not a team make. Develop and motivate teams.
- Working too fast doesn’t get more work done, it creates poor work and less of it. Not to mention the breakdown in thinking and communication.
- Don’t play by other people’s rules. Make your own.
- You’ve got to risk it for the proverbial biscuit. Don’t play to not lose, make mistakes and learn.
- The customer deserves more than to be happy, surprise them.
- The fanciest gadget and tech is not always the best.
- Meet with purpose and direction, not for refreshments.
- Foster trust and focus on possibilities. Never limit or intimidate yourself or your employees.
- Encourage change and enable readiness. Don’t let fear dictate decisions.
- Inspire and empower your employees and get passionate work in return.
- Each person brings their own strengths and weaknesses, know them and use them.
- Create change but don’t force it. Keep the challenge and resources in balance.
- You can learn or teach how to be better at change. We all have the capacity within us.
